Drowsy Driving Statistics
According to an NHTSA study, drowsy drivers are twice as likely to be involved in an accident than other drivers and are involved in more than 100,000 police-reported car crashes each year. Driving while fatigued compromises attention, alertness, judgment, and decision-making abilities – all of which are essential to the safe operation of a motor vehicle.
In severe cases, driving while fatigued can lead to a driver falling asleep behind the wheel. According to a 2005 poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, a staggering 37 percent of drivers have actually fallen asleep while driving, with 13 percent saying that it occurs at least once a month. Fatigued driving is responsible for an estimated 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries and $12.5 billion in monetary losses.
